LONDON -- Three has signed a deal with Virgin Media Business to provide a high-capacity upgrade to the company’s mobile backhaul network.

The five-year, multi-million pound deal will see Virgin Media Business upgrade Three’s backhaul services through its nationwide fibre optic network. The new service will provide better connections between the company’s 15 aggregation sites, already underpinned by Virgin Media Business via MBNL, the 50:50 network joint venture between Three and EE, and three core data centres across the UK.

As more people switch to LTE phones, mobile operators will face increasing pressure from their customers to deliver an instant service, it is vital they have the network capacity to take the strain.

The new fibre optic service will boost Three’s network by a staggering 300Gb capacity This new deal will future-proof Three’s network, ensuring every customer gets the 4G experience they expect. Whether browsing the internet, video calling or using mobile GPS services on the go, Three’s customers will continue to receive a seamless connection.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
